Apple Almond Cake (dairy free, gf free + egg free option!)
Recipe type: cake
Prep time:  5 mins
Cook time:  55 mins
Total time:  1 hour
Serves: 8
  • 110g (2oz; 0.5 cup) coconut oil (or butter)
  • 110g (2oz; 0.5 cup) sweetener (I used Xylitol. If using stevia you might need less as stevia is sweeter)
  • 110g (2 oz; 0.5 cup) organic soya flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 110g (2oz; 0.5 cup) ground almonds
  • 110g flaked almonds (plus some for sprinkling on top)
  • 300g (11 oz; 1.3 cups) Bramley apples (peeled, quartered and sliced)
  • 4 eggs (or 4tbsp of soaked flax seeds in equal amounts of water)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 F/ Gas 4).
  2. Grease a 23cm (9in) cake tin
  3. Blend the coconut butter and sweetener creamy. Stir in the flour, baking powder and ground almonds.
  4. Then chop a good handful of the apple slices into small pieces and add them alongside the flaked almonds to the dough mix.
  5. Now fold the eggs into the cake mixture with a spatula.
  6. Take the cake tin out of the oven. Line it with baking paper and fill the cake batter on top, spreading it equally.
  7. Lay out the remaining apple pieces on top of the dough in circles, starting near the cake rim, working your way towards the center. The more apple pieces you can get in, the better the taste.
  8. Last but not least sprinkle some cinnamon and flaked almonds on top.
  9. Bake for 25-30 mins (until the top is golden and set). Then cover the cake with tin foil and bake for a further 25-30 mins (until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean).
